Just noticed this thread. I don't usually look at Stickys.
i did three tours, two Afghanistans, one Iraq, with the army (82nd Airborne and 173rd Airborne BDE). Was a combat engineer, but mostly in Afghanistan we were just infantrymen.
Got hit in 2005 and medically retired after more than a year at Walter Reed.
thanks to everyone who served or are serving. One thing I've seen since being out is the immense amount of support we get. The country loves you.
